Happy St. George’s Day England!! St George’s Day is Englands national day, but unlike other countries, England does not have celebration to mark this occasion. I wonder why? At least you get the day off work!

England's FlagSt. George is the patron saint of England. His emblem, a red cross on a white background, is the flag of England. It was adopted by Richard The Lion heart and brought to England in the 12th century. The king’s soldiers wore it on their tunics to avoid confusion in battle.
